Lord to be remembered at Sunflower Jam
Jon Lord is to be remembered at next year’s Sunflower Jam during a show which will feature Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, Rick Wakeman and members of Deep Purple.
The keyboard icon passed away last year after a cancer battle at the age of 71.
Lord, an active supporter of the Sunflower Jam, was involved in its formation in 2005 after he went to hospital to visit a 16-year-old cancer victim named Kevin, who later died from the disease.
Lord’s family released a rehearsal video earlier this month to mark what would have been his 72nd birthday, and announced plans for a memorial photo book.
The 2014 Sunflower Jam takes place on April 4 at the Royal Albert Hall in London, and will be compered by iconic TV and radio presenter Bob Harris.
Full lineup and ticket details will be announced in due course.
